Best Tour Guide EVER! If you have one day in Belfast, then this is one you should book!

Reviews of: Private Luxury Giants Causeway Tour From Belfast

If you only have one day in Belfast, then this is tour you MUST book. Murat met us at our hotel and from the moment he greeted us, his customer service was amazing. From opening the van’s door each and every time for my wife and family, to ensuring we were comfortable temperature wise during the drive to the expert knowledge of the Belfast area, the service was first class.

Murat gave us lots of historical and cultural information and was more than happy to answer questions. Our tour was a small group which is something I’ll now prefer to do going forward because the private tour provided by Murat seemed like a friend taking us around the city and countryside.

I would highly recommend this tour over others because you get to do and learn so much more than you would on larger groups. Murat never rushed us at any of our tour stops, and made several on the spot recommendations as he got to learn me and my family.

A second perfect day with Belfast Tours NI!

Reviews of: Ultimate Full-Day Belfast City Sightseeing Tour

After spending the day with our amazing tour guide, Murat, we decided to ask him to create a new itinerary for our second day while in the Belfast area.

This customized tour did not disappoint! On Tuesday, October 5th, we walked down to the lobby of our hotel a bit early and Murat was there, right in front, with the Van’s door open, with a big smile on his face, greeting us with his warm welcome.

He quickly whisked us off to the Armagh Museum in Northern Ireland, located on the edge of the tree-lined Mall in the center of Armagh city. The museum is the oldest County Museum in Ireland opened in 1937. We were able to take our time, walking through all the exhibits, taking us through the history of Armagh.

Once we finished up at the Museum, we were able to take a short stroll over to St Patrick’s Cathedral. Did you know this place has been destroyed and rebuilt 17 times??? I wish my pictures were able to capture how breathtaking this church is. Between the vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows, it was beautiful. Once again, after taking our time walking through, Murat was waiting for us with the luxury Mercedes Van, right out front of the church. Did I mention he has a frig in the back of this vehicle? The offer of cold drinks was so welcomed for me and the family.

On the lovely ride back to Belfast through the country side, Murat filled us in with interesting facts and history as we passed by different landmarks. Of special note, he took the time to engage with meaningful conversation with our daughter who just graduated from Queens University. It’s clear they both have a passion for history as well as the travel bug.

For our next part of the tour, Murat took us through area were the “Troubles” occurred and that included , Falls Road, the Peace Wall, Shankill Road, International Mural Wall Divis Street, Shankill Road and the Bobby Sands Mural. His wealth of knowledge, was informative and the very personal stories were both fascinating and sobering . To learn the history and be on the streets where so much bloodshed occurred was an experience unlike anything I’ve ever done before. Murat’s respectable manner of telling both sides of story was impeccable.

Next stop, Belfast Castle! While it was still closed due to COVID, Murat was able to tell us about the ” 9 cats scavenger hunt” and we had a great time looking for them throughout the garden! The lawns were meticulous and the landscaping was beyond stunning.

Last stop, Afternoon Tea at the Merchant Hotel. Our fabulous tour guide made all the arrangements for this opulent experience. This is a must do if you are visiting Belfast. We are so glad we invited Murat to join us at the table, as he ensured our dietary needs were followed, we had a member of the family who is Vegan and another one that has a nut allergy. While he was our guest for tea, he continue to be so diligent in taking care of us!!!!

During our tea, I almost order a “VERY” expensive cocktail by accident! (Caution! Please look at the price tag for the Sazerac with Vintage Bourbon / Vintage Cognac / Bitters) After he confirmed that I was not interested in that particular cocktail, he asked one of the waiters to bring the vintage bourbon bottle over and they explained why the $. We had such a good laugh and I am grateful for Murat’s ever watchful eye, always looking out for us.

Games of Thrones Tour

Review of: Private Luxury Game of Thrones Tour From Belfast

To set the scene; my wife and I were on a cruise with a planned excursion. The excursion was canceled with 48 hrs notice. Following a mad search on the internet we found several companies that were able to offer a Games of Thrones tour; however there was only one that was willing to drop what they were doing and accommodate us at such short notice apart from Murat. His dedication to customer service and providing a value for money service that is customer orientated were second to none.

Murat meet us of the cruise liner; we discussed what we wanted from the days. Murat was very well prepared in terms of what we can do and was able to quickly devise a day of sight seeing that meet our requirements.

Throughout the day Murat was really entertaining, open and very chatty; he was very knowledgeable of the area and the subject matter and made the day go really quickly.

As we had been to Northern Ireland before we were able to focus purely on the GoT sights. As it happened we still had one hour spare before we needed to back on board; rather than just taking us back to the ship Murat suggested that he use his knowldege of Belfast to take us on a quick tour of the peace wall.

All on all I can honestly say that we made a fantastic decision in using Murat and his company and I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone.

Best tour guide ever!!!

We had decided that we didn’t want to try to drive in Ireland and add any stress to our trip so we decided to look for a tour guide to show us around. We found Murat Yilmaz of Belfast Tours and he was everything and more that you could ask for in a guide. He is very knowledgeable about the area and has a passion for nature that is very evident. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience for my first trip to Ireland!

Wonderful experience

Review of: Private Luxury Full-Day Belfast Sightseeing Tour From Belfast Cruise Terminal
I can’t rate this tour highly enough! Murat did a wonderful job showing me and my father some of the well-known (and lesser-known) areas of Northern Ireland. Knowing that my father is older and can’t walk easily, Murat made the tour easy to navigate and was a pleasure to travel with in his VERY comfortable vehicle. This type of tour is ideal for older travelers and allows you to pick where you want to go. 
Murat communicated our plans very well and was very knowledgeable about all of the locations we visited. We were so happy with the tour that we asked Murat to take us for a Belfast tour the next day, and we were fortunate that he was available. We will most definitely use this company on our next visit!

Wish everyone had a chance to take this tour

Review of: Private Luxury Giants Causeway and Antrim Coast Tour
I wish everyone had a chance to spend a day with Murat, exploring Ireland north of Belfast. He is a wonderful guide—knowledgeable, kind, patient, accommodating, great sense of humor. I had a wonderful time with him, going at my own pace, visiting sites from The Dark Hedges at dawn (magical!) to the ruins and wonders along the north coast, ending with a dramatic ride down the beautiful Antrim Coast. I loved our discussions about Irish history, whiskey, churches, The Troubles, and am grateful for all he taught me along the way.

Wish everyone had a chance to take this tour

Review of: Premium Fully Customizable Shore Excursion Tour From Belfast Cruise Terminal
We met Murat as we were searching for George Best`s childhood home and where he started his great career as a football genius. This was a lucky strike for us. Murat did of course know the way, and the next day he gave us a fantastic tour of Belfast and the Northern Irish coastline. During the 9 hour trip, we were taken places we did not know existed, we were educated in history, geography, best fish and chips place, whiskey, Dark hedges, and Giant Causeway. Thank you, Murat, you treated us really well!
